Swiss-French designer Julie Richoz graduated from Ecole Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne. Later on, in 2012, she set up her own studio in Paris, where she keeps on developing her individual visual language.
Besides having various works exhibited in galleries, such as Galerie kreo Paris and the Gallery Libby Sellers, in London, Julie collaborates with acclaimed brands including Alessi, Artecnica, Louis Poulsen and more recently Louis Vuitton. Sensitive to forms and materials, Julie’s objects aim for elegance.
"I wish to make object that enrich our life, from a practical point of view but mainly from the quality of their presence. I wish to make object that are good companions,” explained Julie. Her objects are built by hand, as she is very attuned towards the vibration of handwork and enjoys the idea of imperfection. Every item has the integrity of an original creation, existing in a form of equilibrium and harmony. Although, each object is peculiar, all together they create a coherent whole. The selection presented below is a survey of Julie’s works, ranging from bright-color vases and containers made of flat sheet metal, to environmental enriching object, exploring the soft focus phenomenon, and more particularly the resultant mix of colours.
